Your code is flipping it on and off instantly. You need to add another flag which turns on when you press Q, and turns off when you let go.

Example, flag 10 is the flag I was just talking about.

Upon pressing Q
flag 3 is off
flag 10 is off.
Flag 3 on
Flag 10 on


Upon pressing Q
flag 3 is on
flag 10 is off.
Flag 3 off
Flag 10 on


Flag 10 is on
(negate) Repeat while pressing Q
Flag 10 off

So when you press Q, flag 10 turns on, and when you let go, it turns it off.

Same thing. Except, Peblo tailored it directly for you. I was too lazy.

I'd say, use a values instead

- upon pressing Q
Add Value X

- Value X is 2
Set value X to 0

LMAO! That's completely true! I think most people forgot the toggle flag button existed

Just a small comment from an observer -

Some of us do not think logically, that is why we oversee the simple things, that can make your life easier. It has allways been a problem for me. I must continually say to myself; "Think logical!"

Of course the toggle action is the one to be used. Know your software and know your logic, and things can get much simpler - hehe.

Keep on clicking.

Why not take the events he originally put up and add "Only one action when event loops" to each? Or use one with the toggle flag option and "Only one action when event loops".

I certainly did. But I was thinking in terms of the other one-- the one involving menu selection changing, I didn't think about the specific problem.

It usually works out that way, but sometimes french logic overrides your own and you have to find alternate ways of doing code.
